CBA Book Group is now reading THE BETRAYERS by David Bezmozgis (Fiction, 256 pgs., 2015) for discussion Sunday, October 16, in my sukkah. The book spans 1 Jewish day in the life of a powerful Israeli politician, a former Soviet refusenik.
The story takes place mostly in Yalta and casts attention to the plight of Jews in both Israel and Ukraine. It’s about ethics, conscience, love and forgiveness. . . a different way of confronting the questions of Yom Kippur.
Loaner copies still available. All members and friends are welcome. Comments or questions and time. . . Linda Emblen at 707-544-4532. L’Shanah Tovah & G’Mar Tov!
